Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrow) is the street in Jerusalem that Jesus is supposed to have traveled while carrying the cross. Being of Christian Palestinian descent, I tend to use my platforms to point out disparities between Christianity the ideology, and Christianity the American cult of white supremacy. This sculpture is also a continuation of my interest
in the correlation between social justice and built environment (or its destruction). The porch posts that comprise the arms of the crucifix
were sourced from a demolished house in my Columbus neighborhood; in an area laid waste by disinvestment, before again becoming desirable to developers. The centerpiece of the cross is comprised of text excerpts from Oren Yiftachel's paper, "Planning and Social Control: Exploring the Dark Side."
